At Elmwood we desire to create an environment where people of all ages can join in the worship of our great God, and that includes our kids! Depending on the ages of your children, we offer a variety of options:
Nursery care is available throughout the entire service and prior to the service, starting at 9:15am.
Children’s Church (Preschool and Elementary):
Elmwood Kids begins at 9:15am. Your kids can be checked in at the table near the south hallway and parents can head to the conference room for our adult education hour. During that hour, you can rest assured that your kids will be learning about our great God, having an excellent time, and are in safe and capable hands. At 10:15am the kids will be dismissed to join their parents for our worship gathering. They will then be dismissed once again for an activity or discussion during the sermon time. Following the sermon, the children will join us in worshipping Jesus until the end of the service.
Middle and High School (6th-12th grade):
As kids get older, we want to acknowledge that they have genuine questions and are wrestling with real decisions in their day to day life. Furthermore, we believe that parents, in partnership with the collective body of Christ, are a child’s first line of discipleship. To that end, Elmwood’s youth will find a safe and accessible space participating in our weekly worship service, where we firmly believe they will hear faithful preaching of the word and engage in authentic fellowship. Youth are also welcome to join the adults during their education hour from 9:15-10:15am.
